    NCAA Tournament

    I know a lot of people in here are excited about the tourney, so I figured it deserves its own thread. I'd like to hear people's predictions, players they are watching, teams they are rooting for, etc.

    Here are my tourney picks:

    Elite 8:
    Florida
    Kansas
    Michigan St.
    Villanova (although I'm really tempted to put UNC)
    Arizona
    Wisconsin
    Louisville
    Duke

    Final 4:
    Florida
    Michigan St.
    Arizona
    Louisville

    Finals:
    Arizona
    Florida

    National Champion:
    Arizona (Homer pick, but I think they have a good chance)

    Players I'm paying close attention to for our pick:
    Rodney Hood
    Willie Cauley-Stein
    Andrew Wiggins
    Gary Harris
    Tyler Ennis

    Elite 8

    Florida
    Syracuse
    Michigan St
    Villanova
    Arizona
    Wisconsin
    Louisville
    Duke

    Final Four

    Syracuse
    Michigan St
    Arizona
    Louisville

    Finals

    Louisville over Syracuse

    I don't have any cinderella teams going to the final 16. I have providence winning their first 2 games as my only under 8 seed winning 2 games.

    Hopefully this time next month I will be spending my billion dollars.

    The LRMC computer model which has correctly picked 3 of the last 6 winners in the NCAA tournament has Louisville beating Arizona in the championship game.

    Dayton/Ohio St cost me my billion in the first game of the tourney.

    Dayton cost me a billion too.

    However I am doing well. I won 9 of the first 10 including Harvard over Cincy and I have NC State over St Louis which is going down to the wire.

    You suck NC State. 16 point lead and they can't make their free throws.

    NC State and Oklahoma both choked down the stretch.

    I hit 12 of 16 on the first day, I am going to guess that is close to average. I still have 15 of the 16 sweet 16 teams.

    I lost with Ohio St, NC State, Oklahoma, and Arizona St....3 of those 4 losses went down to the wire.

    Providence early on is a big one for me as I went out on a limb and I have them going to the sweet 16. In a large pool those 3 points plus someone else not getting points for North Carolina could be a difference maker.

    Like Plague I hit 12 of 16. Have all of my sweet 16 in tact. My Final four is Florida, Sparty, Louisville, and Oklahoma St. Call me crazy but if Ok State can pull the upset on Arizona I think they can get there. I have MSU and Louisville in the final with Sparty taking it home.

    3, 742 people had a perfect bracket after the first day. I looked at the top 5 and 1 of them had Mercer beating Duke. However they have Texas beating SF Austin in the championship game and I can't picture that happening.

    I was just looking at someone who had a perfect bracket for the first day. He has Mercer beating Duke so he is 17 for 17, he has Baylor beating Neb which is going to make him 18 for 18 and he has Florida beating Arizona in the championship game which is a reasonable prediction. That guy is in good shape.

    I was also 12 of 16. I lost one of my elite 8 in Duke this morning and it looks like I'll lose another with Baylor winning.

    OK State is so ****ing streaky.
    For that, I have them losing to AZ.
